    You will find a lot of info on this topic. Easiest way to find this info would be to use the search function. Try mini-me, d16z6 etc....
    also check out the reference , swap and articles section of the web site. all the info you need will be there. I only say to take a look around because this question gets asked 1029020912039102391392392392 times a month and you'll learn alot more of what needs to be done.
    There's noe replacement for knowledge.

    good luck with your swap. and after you've done some research on this site, We'll be glad to give you some advise etc...

    well I'm glad you searched for some stuff. there are a few guys on here that have done this swap. Jeff has just done it recently and I assume it's fresh in his mind. hopefully he'll catch this thread.

    i did the mini me swap, and its all over my mind .. let me know what you wanna know . it was fun because you got vtec and alittle more trq. but it had to go i through a b18 in my car instead. This swap is only wrth it if you build it. Just slapping the head on doesnt do much at all. In detail i need to know what yr motor your putting in and what head your using . just pm me .

    yes, Jeff did a Z6 on a 4g civic, kinda different... you need the :
    Y8 head
    Y8 Intake Manifold w/ throttle body
    Y8 Distributor
    P2P ECU or a Apexi VAFC, or Fields VTEC controller
    Y8 Timing Belt
    Helms Manual (this will save you tons of hours/questions) go to helminc.com and get one!
